A network manager ensures that all parts of a company's network of computers are functioning properly. This position generally requires work outside of traditional business hours. Not only do computers have a habit of breaking at all hours of the day and night, but there are also hardware and software upgrades and other types of changes to infrastructure which generally need to be executed during non-business hours, so that workflow will not be interrupted. Some companies will offer comp time to make up for these odd hours, but others do not.Read More...
